-frank with the financial industry, the automobile industry, what lisa jackson and the epa is doing to the energy sector, the national labor relations board, that's nationalizing it. the nanny state, economic fairness, economic patriotism, fairness and fair shot, those are type of policies and theories that are not consistent with a constitutional republic, definitely not consistent with our founding fathers, the type of people like that. we re-elected someone that went to $10 trillion to $16 trillion in debt. we've had an incredible earth-shattering numbers of americans in poverty, americans on food starches. we've seen a 32% in welfare spending. we've seen gas prices being exorbitantly high. he has every right to afeel arrogant and feel he'll never be held responsible. >> sean: i think republicans need to get over whatever their feelings over the election. they were elected too. i don't know one republican congressman -- correct me if i'm wrong -- that was sent there to support the president's agenda. when i vote for a congressman, i vote they'll represent my interests. so the question is, do you thin
, in the building trades. those individuals, those who work in the energy industry in all shapes, forms and sizes. those who may be in the vocational trades. maybe even nurses and nurses aids, who are lifting patients all day long. thank god for them. we see them all the time when we're visiting the sick and our relatives or we're in the hospital system of what i'm saying is, you cannot have a cookie that fits all. you cannot immediately jump to entitlement reform between now and december 31. here's a solution. the bipartisan voices have said pass the senate bill or pass the elimination of the tax cuts on the top 2%. but i believe that 100% of americans will get it. we cannot then jump to entitlement reform now. it would not be wise. it is not prudent. it does not work. when you talk about 65 to 67, that's a lifetime. because what you do as the gentleman has said york uh throw seniors into the marketplace, you save a buck and they have to spend two bucks, three bucks, four bucks and then on top of those four bucks, they'll have doored slammed in their faces, the affordable care act was premised o
. it sits on four tetonic plants on top of each other releasing massive amount of energy. the place is hit by 20% of the world's earthquake with magnitude six or higher. if we get more details we'll bring them to you here on "america's newsroom". martha: we'll talk about the jobs number that came in this morning. this is the november number. down to 7.7%. that is the lowest number we've seen since december of 2008. but the internal numbers look like this. the labor department says that 350,000 people dropped out of the workforce and stuart varney feels that number is very significant. he joins me now. host of "varney & company". good morning, stuart. >> morning martha. bill:. martha: talk to me about both those numbers. >> that 7.7% rate first announced that was a surprise. it had not been expected to go down. then you dig within the numbers you come up with that very important number, 350,000. that is by how many people the labor force shrank, contracted. when you take out 350,000 from the total workforce, then you do get the unemployment rate coming down. so that number, 350,000. that is
zeros in on a failed stimulus attempt, and it usually involves a green energy company that they tried to put money into to sort of prop them up, and then the market said, no, no, we still want our suvs, we want our gas guzzlers, and we know it's bad for the environment, but we love 'em. and they're so big, and they hit so many kids. but whatever, the white house responds by saying it's like anybody's investment portfolio, you've got winners and losers. and, you know, we tried, and they're not all going to be great and, of course, the press is going to focus on the ones that lose, and i imagine they would say this is another example of that happening. >> this is true. that's what they will say. the problem for the president is that the losers are very famous, and they're very notable. solyndra, and we've had solar firms, other solar firms, a123 battery is now famous because of the china sale going on right now. so for the president whatever he says about the unfairnesses of being judged by these failures, the truth is they stick out so much, and the president can say that over time the
stimulus grant. a123 systems was once heralded by energy secretary steven chu as a success story for american manufacturing. the green battery maker blaming weak demand for electric cars for their failure. china, obvioussy, has plans to fix all of that with a little help from the american taxpayer and, of course, the president. wile we focus on the fiscal cliff negotiations, or more appropriately the impasse, many of our state governments aren't in much better shape. state pension systems, unfunded liabilities are now estimated to be in the range of $2.5 trillion to almost $4 trillion. leading is california with more than $370 billion in unfunded pension liabilities, only 47% are currently funded. a pension debt per household in california of almost $30,000. illinois close behind, $167 billion in unfunded liabilities, 28% funded, and the state pension debt per household amounting to over $34,000. in municipal bonds illinois sold over $5 billion in bonds this year making it the third biggest debt issuer in the first three quarters this year. california and new york, numbers one an
. -- it was in the 1990's. because we are more competitive on energy prices and people are saying we will be relatively competitively on the energy price component and construction and cost, i think there is reasonable evidence we are starting to pull in more manufacturing. we may have hit the bottom the started in 1979. there is a reason for hope. i think the metaphor is the automobile out. there might even be more policy there. i cannot imagine if there is an aggressive policy on manufacturing and construction -- that is another word for infrastructure, and there might be some hope, especially for less skilled mails. >> i am glad anthony mentioned energy cost. we have done even mention climate change, which i think is going to be -- it all way -- already is a major issue for the world to face. it will only grow in importance and significance. looking at the development boom and the potential for shell gas and shale oil is a real opportunity and challenge. an opportunity for significant economic growth, an opportunity to move away from dirtier fossil fuels and maybe served as a bridge into renewable e
on energy and manufacturing and research, deeply about whether he will help nih push us to the next frontiers of alzheimer's and other important biomedical research," and then say, "it is not really my business, i am not a budget%, to worry about whether we are pending on our discretionary budget." what i have to say to folks is that you cannot pretend you care deeply about innovation and research and investing in early childhood and investing in science and stem education if you are indifferent to whether or not we reduce our budget deficit by simply taking deeper and deeper cuts in domestic discretionary budget. at some point you skip to a point where you are simply treating of between -- trading off between early to childhood and biomedical research and higher education. those are not trade-offs the american public wants us to make. when we talk about getting our fiscal discipline, our fiscal house in order, i want to remind people that when i was here in the early 1990's, one of the clarion calls, one of the reasons people make that case, was that if we had expanding deficits, i

. >> what. >> transportation costs are lower. delivery to market is slashed. energy prices are much cheaper. your work force is more productive and less likely to go out on strike. stuart: wait, wait a minute. the work force in america is more productive and less likely to go on strike than china, is that right? >> in china you have one wild cat strike after another, and suicide. and they make the products for apple said 10,000 robots and in 2014 one million. wh you have robot production, that minimizes china's cheap labor. and in california where they have facilities with robots it's just as cheap orrer than a robot in shin sheng. you wait a minute how come you're so wrong, china hasn't collapsed. >> i said it would occur in a decade, but you see the problems there, the economy is stumping and the central government is eroding and china people are taking to the streets. so, the wheels are coming off china. >> you're going to be right eventually. >> soon. stuart: within the next two years? >> maybe sooner than that. stuart: very interesting, gor n gordonment thanks as always. it's 9:29 alm
here. what is interesting when you have mergers and acquisition particularly in energy this is something that brings positive sentiment to wall street. let's look at freeport-mcmoran. also taking a look at other names that are involved, right? you're looking at, see how they are faring. plains exploration is up 25%. mcmoran exploration up 82%. freeport-mcmoran is buying both of those together. this is $9 billion. this is about oil and gas producers and it will create a natural resources conglomerate. this is a huge, huge move. freeport-mcmoran is a name we always took to when we talk about commodities and things on the move and on a day where oil and gold are to the downside, gold in particular talking about freeport-mcmoran, copper and gold. you can see it is down 14%. that is not unusual to see an acquirer selling off as the two that are being acquired are gaining big-time. this is the action we're seeing in this mining and oil and exploration type deal and this is a big one. certainly scooped up wall street this morning. back to you. melissa: nicole, thanks so much.
? this is big news. what are you waiting for? one is for a clean, wedomestic energy future that puts us in control. our abundant natural gas is already saving us money, producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind and solar. though all energy development comes with some risk, we're committed to safely and responsibly producing natural gas. it's not a dream. america's natural gas... putting us in control of our energy future, now. >>> for the first time in a week president obama and speaker boehner talked about the fiscal cliff. it was by phone. both sides agreed that they would not talk about the details. what we do know is that it has not led yet to any major breakthroughs. we want to get to congressman steve latourette, republican from the state of ohio. he is leaving congress, decided not to run for re-election, citing gridlock as a big reason why. we appreciate your time with us this morning. >> thank you. >> can we start with syria first before we get to the fiscal cliff? we know that there's this red line that hillary clinton has talked abo
that is we subicized cheap to commina. this is a green energy company and part of president obama's energy policy that failed. >> gretchen: sorry to throw you because we didn't talk about it. did you see by 2030 that america will not be the super power that it has been. >> i have seen it before. the economic super power. we are spending so much more than we are taking in and borrowing the deficit largely from china. they recycle the money and buy our assets cheap. are we happy about this absolutely not. the ball is in president obama's court. are you going to do this or not. >> gretchen: it is explained simply. you are the star of your own show. >> this is very unpopular. america on a fire sale bought cheap people are not happy about it. >> gretchen: you will talk about it 9:20 a.m. on fox business network. >> thank you. >> gretchen: tax hikes and trying to avoid paying their open taxes. tucker carlson on the double standard. did you see dogs learning how to drive? did they pass the test. the results are in. i think they park better than i do for sure. ♪ [ malennouncer ] it's tt time of

in terms of what a good compromise is come or what you should compromise on, there is this real energy around compromise. thinking about four years from now, the end of obama's second term, by that time you think the economy will improve? 51% say it will improve, and 39%, and economic well-being of the middle class -- i have to catch up with my slides here. there we go. the deficit and that will improve is 34%. the one thing they are certain is taxes will increase and government spending will increase. in the next four years, how effective do you think the each ofnt will be eaon the issues? this is how it basically stacks up. insuring long-term future entitlement programs, social security, medicaid, 65% think that what happened. 64% say creating jobs, 64% say improving public education, growing economy, and lowering the federal deficit falls down at 40%. not as much confidence there as there are on the other items. we then said the united states faces a number of challenges, including large budget deficits, national debt, slower economic recovery from the recession, high unemployment,
the calculations on both sides of the aisle? is there a new energy to get this done one way or the other? >> well, i think speaking in terms of how we look at it, at department of homeland security and i think if the white house at large, we've been very committed from the first term to try to do something on emmigration reform. the hill was not able to take it up for a variety of reasons. but i think now there is a new willingness to take a look at this subject. it's always a tough sub. it has been historically. but we're at a period in our history where we have an opportunity to really create a 21st century immigration system that foster legal crossing, legal workers, that then allows us on the enforcement side, as i mentioned, to really focus on those who are here that are dangers to public safety and others. >> suarez: janet napolitano as secretary of homeland security, secretary, thanks for joining us. >> you bet. thank you. >> woodruff: later this week, ray will examine the state of the administration's new policy to stop deporting young immigrants who entered the country illegally as child
